SARANAC LAKE — The village of Saranac Lake has announced the date for the third 6er Relay hiking challenge, to be held this October.

The Saranac Lake 6er hiking challenge requires hikers to tackle McKenzie, Haystack, Scarface, St. Regis, Ampersand and Baker mountains. The relay requires teams of hikers to tackle the mountains, although Ampersand Mountain is excluded due its location in a wilderness area.
